5 Mehendi Makeup Tips for Brides-to-be
No Indian wedding is complete without a mehendi ceremony. And over the years, this ceremony has gotten grander. Yes, it’s no longer a ghar ka affair. Couples celebrate their mehendi ceremony on a larger scale, calling all of their friends and families to be a part of it.
Every bride goes through tons of Instagram pages, magazines and puts in a lot of time for her research to get the best dress, hairstyle, shoes and accessories for her mehendi ceremony. All these things are in her control and she can look into it herself if something doesn’t fit her needs. But one thing that she can’t really control is her makeup. Most brides rely on their makeup artist to add glam to their looks.
We thought we would help them out a bit with some must-know tips to help them look their ravishing best on their big day. So, without wasting any more of your time, here’s all you need to know about this:
1. Keep it Natural
Look elegant in your mehendi ensemble and keep your makeup natural with a minimal liner, flawless base and some blush!
2. Less is More
Let your jewellery do the talking and keep your makeup simple with a neutral base, peachy-pink lips and accentuate your lashes with heavy mascara.
3. Add a Touch of Pink
Mehendi ceremony looks are best when kept minimal. Now, who wouldn’t agree that minimal makeup with soft pink lips and flushed cheeks look the best?
4. Dewy Is In
Kohled eyes, subtle cheeks and raspberry lips will give you a refreshing look!
5. Shimmer It Up!
Not all brides may opt for shimmery makeup but some brides do and they can carry it off really well! If you’re looking at opting for this, keep in mind to keep it neutral – it’s bold yet stylish!
